The map editor needs a "starter" zone type

Whenever I start a game from a map made from the map editor, I always have to play with all tech unlocked because you can’t buy your initial shop space without the expansion research, which you never have unless all tech is turned on.

I suggest an additional “starter zone” zone type for the editor. This would designate the floor space available from the onset, until expansion can be researched. This would allow for custom map play with the added challenge of research.

If you change your starting zone from locked to unlocked in the drop down - it will fix this. I unlock and create my start zone first, then lock all the areas on the map i create next. Plays like a normal mission that way.


Thanks. I’ll give that a try.
